hat is a Hot Stone Massage?
Stone massage is a unique connection we experience with nature, offering a sense of profoundness and sacredness that we too often forget. Most Native American tribes believe that the souls of the dead pass into a spirit world and become part of the spiritual forces that influence every aspect of our lives. Each stone has a story to tell. Sometimes that story is for you, other times it is directed toward me. For that reason, each stone I use is hand picked, hand cleaned, and is revered as the empowered soul that it is.
Hot stone massage is also suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing me to work the muscles without using deep pressure.
Hot stone massage is very similar to a swedish massage with heated basalt river stones placed on key areas of your body, as well as in my hands as I glide them over your body. The high iron content of the rocks helps retain heat, which will help dissolve muscle tension, improve circulation, release debris and provide you with an overall sense of relaxation and warmth.
